It was clear in your first post that you knew just what you had done.

JMM's (aka Throwin Stones) post was nothing less than inflammatory.

Still don't understand how my post was inflammatory (or deserved the ad hominem attacks that it drew.) My guess is that you two and the direwolf are very young.
Taping copyright material (and selling audience or soundboard tapes) is taboo. To then brag about it (which is how I took your statement regarding a need to maintain the secrecy of the sender's identity,) I think, is in poor taste.

What stone have I thrown? What statement is not true?

i am not exactly young, but thanks for the compliment.

i simply take my age, divide by four, and arrive at my maturity level. So that would make it...... errrrr.....ummmmm.... damn, i'm too young to know division.

Matter of fact. It is not illegal to tape or copy copyrighted materials for personal use. In this instance, the personal use would be defined as a "gift." No harm, no foul, and Boby's kids will probably still make it through college.

Cuz Mr. Earl Sez So.

according to --U.S.-- law:

I'm not positive.. but I believe the copyright holder "owns" the rights to the material and can specify how it can be used, whether it can be freely distributed or not.

It is TRUE however, that according to U.S. copyright law, someone who purchases the material is allowed to make a *backup* copy for their own personal use.

There is ALSO another U.S. law which says it is illegal to circumvent copy protection.

Yes... paraphrasing Mark Twain: U.S. Congress is breeding ground for jackasses.

Now wait a minute. This dude called me young. For that alone I am in his debt.

Too bad my 23 year old son doesn't agree.

Oh, well, cant win them all.

Have you searched "50 cent" "microsoft" or "black eyed peas lately"? Of just click items with keywords like "asdf" and "jkl;", you have a 1 in three chance of either bootleg music and software, porn or terror snuff training seminars. Now the cops could go for everyone with a roach in their ashtray or a dusty white nostril, or they can focus on the guy with half acre crop and the Kalashnikov stash.

My girlfriend gets cd's on amazon for 99 cents plus shipping. That is basically giving the orginal away for free. I am interested in finding out if those bastards backed it up first.

I am starting to lose respect for most of today's artists anyway. Like splitny spears and curt nobrain who despite havign the ways and means to most effectively address all medical, emotional, psyhological, legal, financial and bordedom problems adequately. They say money can't buy happiness... bullshit.

Everyone of my problems could be solved with more cash, period.

Cash equals health care, counseling, therapy and better quality healthy food. All of this would help you immensely in the physical department.

Cash equals lawyers, fines, court costs, research and a limo to drive you home when your drunk... Anyone with a million dollars and legal issues is a moron.

Cash equals vacations, gifts, massive plasma tv's, 48 tracks digital automated mixers, the latest tech gear at a whim, world traveling, and lots of other activities that might have a slight inclination to make you less stressed, happier and feeling fulfilled that you are living life.

Cash equals the ability to go get a phd, to donate a million to cancer research center, to publish a book, make a movie, sell a gold record and become an icon or at least esteemed enough so that only a retard would say they didn't accomplish anything on their death bed.

If your sterile, you can pay for treatment and have kids, or adopt, or buy from china recall infant list.

If your blind you can pay 4 people to look in all directsion adn constantly describe the surroundings in poetic prose. Or get ocular implants or webcam usb port in your head.

If you are stricken with a disease that even money cannot cure, you can still throw a massive ass party and travel to ireland on a whim and live up your last days, but at that point suicide would be redundant. Which brings me to the suicide part... why on earth if you had the ways and means to adress every problem with infinite more ability, would you blow your brains out? I mean you do know we are all dying anyway, right? What if you are wrong? Can't hit undo, even on a mac.

My bills are all due and the babies need shoes but I'm busted
Cotton is down to a quater a pound and I'm busted
I've got a cow that went dry and a hen that won't lay
A big stack of bills that get bigger each day EE
The County will haul my belongings away I'm busted!


I went to my brother to ask for a loan I was busted
I hate to beg like a dog for a bone but I'm busted
My brother said there ain't a thing I can do
My wife and my kids are all down with the flu
And I was just thinking of calling on you I'm busted!

Lord I'm no thief but a man can go wrong when he's busted
The food that we canned last summer is gone and I'm busted
The fields are all bare and the cotton won't grow
Me and my family's gotta pack up and go
Where I'll make a livin' the Lord only knows but I'm busted!

Lazy Town "You are a Pirate" -

[Intro - Robbie Rotten] Haha, Let's go! All aboard,
Hahaha! Come aboard, Children & Buccaneers!

[Robbie]
Do what you want 'cause a pirate is free,
You are a pirate!

[Chorus - ALL]
Yarr har fiddle dee dee
Being a pirate is alright with me,
Do what you want 'cause a pirate is free,
You are a pirate!

[Robbie]
You are a Pirate! (Yay!)

We've got us a map (A map!)
To lead us to a hidden box
It's all locked up with locks (with Locks!)
And buried deep away.

We'll dig up the box (the box!)
We know it's full of precious booty,
Burst open the locks!

[ALL]
And then we'll sing hooray!

[Stephanie's Chorus]
Yarr har fiddle dee dee,
If you love to sail the sea,
You are a pirate!

[Robbie]
Weigh anchor!

[ALL]
Yarr har fiddle dee dee
Being a pirate is alright with me!
Do what you want 'cause a pirate is free,
You are a pirate!

Arr yarr, ahoy and avast
Dig a deep dig and you're digging too fast!

[Robbie]
Hang the black flag at the end of the mast!

[ALL]
You are a pirate! Hahahahah (Yay!)

[Robbie]
We're sailing away (Set Sail!)
Adventure waits on every shore,
We set sail and explore (Yarr Har!)
and run and jump all day (Yeah!)
We float in our boat (The Boat!)
Until it's time to drop the anchor,
Then hang up our coats (Aye, Aye!)
Until we sail again!

[Stephanie's Chorus]

[Robbie]
(Record Scratching)
Hey, look!
Land Ho!

[Chorus - All]

[Robbie]
Yarr har! Wind's at your back lads wherever you go!

[ALL]
Blue sky above and blue ocean below!
You are a pirate!

[Robbie]
Ha ha ha ha!
You are a pirate!
